trying to work out how to backup c:\ d:\ directories on a windows server using cygwin (rsync over ssh)
what paths would you use as obviously the command line (cygwin) is different to windows
is it difficult?

thanks for answering

In cygwin, all of your drives are accessible under the /cygdrive/ master directory. So C:\ is /cygdrive/c/, D:\ is /cygdrive/d/, etc. Beyond that, everything should look and work just like you would expect.
